Hot tubThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Simple room with a single bed, window, desk, shelf, and area to store clothes. It's a step up from camping or dorm, and quite affordable, less than mile from UH Hilo, ocean park, and town. Access to outdoor living area, fridge, hot tub and laundry. We are a motley crew of four sharing a kitchen area and bath. The house is funky but fun. The common areas are not always the cleanest, but your room would be. It's on the lower level of an old plantation house with tin shower, fruit trees and yard.

Was a good stay, basic as in description. The host was really nice and the dog was friendly. Walkable in to town but uphill on the way back so be prepared for that. Overall pleasant stay.

My stay was wonderful. The room was exactly as described and very close to Hilo. I loved the outdoor space and met wonderful other people staying there. Don’t expect a super fancy place, it is minimalist. The bed was very comfortable.

Kalama's place is really interesting: apparently it's an old farm house & it has a beautiful garden and outside living room. I only crashed for a night, but I liked the vibe and would have liked to stay longer! Communication with Kalama was great & she put in quite a bit of effor…

Travelers can carry own linens and disinfecting wipes. Place lack maintenance. Pictures and description matches. Enjoy the singing frogs and birds.

Response from Kalama:
You reported the linens in the Glamping room smelled damp. we had unprecedented rains and that is our screened in room so it got humid. We were happy were able to be move you to a room that was more comfortable.
